Kick It Into High Gear and Go
Head-To-Head With Family and Friends on the Wii and Nintendo DS

It’s time to rev up the engines and
race into an all-new adventure with the MySims! The EA Play Label of Electronic
Arts Inc. announced today that MySims Racing for the Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ zooms
into retail outlets this week. The latest title in the popular MySims franchise
starts players as wannabe speedsters and after working their way up the ranks,
it is time for them to burn rubber against the toughest MySims rival racers on
the trickiest tracks in Speedville. The excitement never stops as the more
successful the player is on the track, the more they will be able to customize
their kart and trick it out with new engines and bodies. Designed specifically
from the ground up for the Nintendo platforms, MySims Racing offers something
for everyone who wants to live life in the fast lane.

“The MySims have had many adventures
and conquered many challenges, but for the first time we find them behind the
wheels of their own customized vehicles,” said Tim LeTourneau, General Manager
of the MySims Franchise. “MySims Racing combines the fun and quirky MySims
spirit our fans love with fast-paced action-packed arcade racing. We can’t wait
for players to take this game for a spin.”
